CABIAO, Nueva Ecija – Malacanang yesterday called on the National Historical Commission of the Philippines (NHCP) to look into several “historical errors” about events involving the “Unang Sigaw ng Nueva Ecija” to set the heroism of Gen. Mariano Llanera and other revolutionaries in its proper perspective.
Secretary Herminio Coloma of the Presidential Communications and Operations Office (PCOO) said the NHCP, led by its executive director Ludovico Badoy should conduct a thorough research on the historic event and make facts and figures “accurate” and “realistic” to give justice to its heroes.
“We should correct historical errors because facts and figures are significant in such a historic event as the Unang Sigaw ng Nueva Ecija,” Coloma said at the sidelines of the 115th anniversary of the revolution at the municipal compound here yesterday noon. (Manny Galvez)
